What is a young man to do for a whole day with no school or work?

Obviously attend mass (once I become Catholic, Eucharist will be part of that) but what do I do with the rest of the day?

Waste it on youtube? Read some Chesterton? What do you guys do on Sundays after Church?

Sundays after Mass I usually go for brunch with my family. Then by the time we get home from that all I want to do is read or watch a little tv in the afternoon. Exercising is great too. Basically, I try to think of Sunday as my day away from the world. Hope that helps. haha

Suggestions...

- Join a fantasy football league and scream at the TV when they stink it up.
- Take a nap.
- Watch football.
- Take a nap.
- Learn to cook manly food. Seriously. Chili, hot wings, tacos, nachos...
- Visit family and friends.
- Go for a hike.
- Get friends together for some poker, mexican train dominoes, spades... something.
- Take up frisbee golf (fun game, free to play, cheap to get into and no one has to work for you to go).
- If you're on PS3 you can beat the snot out of me on BF3.
- Take another nap.

If you're really hurting for stuff to do, my grass needs mowing and the garage needs to be cleaned up.

What do I do on Sundays after going to Church? Well, now that I have a daughter and another on the way I do NOTHING. My life is busy enough and time with family is well-spent. Watch the football game as I can. On occasion get outside and do something fun or see DWs family (we just moved, so not like I have any friends to hang out with).

Before we had kids. DW and I would cook good Sunday meals, go see friends, go to parks, go for a hike, relax. Actually we spent most Sunday afternoons hanging with friends and I'm so glad we did. We never did anything special, just go over for lunch or dinner, watch movies at home, play a game of cards, take turns on the PS3, go swim... whatever. Good times.

Enjoy days doing nothing, they won't last forever.

Rest is one of the most important things you can do to reset your mind and stay healthy: nap, do a hobby you enjoy, go to a party, play a sport you like, take a bath, get a drink or a smoke, go for a walk in the forest. We had a sermon on the importance of spending rest time alone (like Jesus in the desert) so go for a lonely hike and pray or sing or do both.

Sunday good deeds according to the catechism: read or listen to something about your faith, visit someone ill or lonely, volunteer with some worthy cause or at church..... (but don't forget to rest!!!!!)

World Youth Day just ended and everyone is talking about what a great success it was. If have a little extra time on a Sunday after church, see what the Catholic Church is doing to get the youth more involved on their new website: http://bit.ly/16kjdQj. It shows what Pope Francis is trying to do to get kids more involved with the Church.
